What is Depression?

Updated: Sep 18, 2019

Do you just have the blues, or are you depressed? Many of my clients tell me that they did not know for a long time that they were depressed. They felt they just were feeling "low" or "down" but did not realize they were actually depressed, until they were deep in the throes of depression and it has started taking over their lives -- personal and professional. Many did not seek help for a long time, and I know that the vast majority of those suffering from depression, still don't seek help. Either because they don't recognize or acknowledge it, or because they are too embarrassed and ashamed to talk about it. They fear the harsh judgement of those around them. The verdict of society, it's impact on their families. Or what would happen if their employer finds out about their mental health. Some are afraid to visit a doctor and fear judgement, or medications that may numb them or rob them of their already depleted vitality.

The truth is that the only thing to fear and be afraid of, really afraid of, is of losing your mind. Because if you lose you mind, you will truly lose everything. So please do not be hesitant to seek help if you feel you are depressed. Persuade anyone who seems depressed to talk about it and seek help too. Be open to a solution, to healing. Start with a counselling session and let your counselor guide you and suggest the right course of action. Do it now, as depression is a dark and lonely journey. You don't need to take it by yourself.
